Angels with Paws 501c3 charity runs a mostly cage-free, Limited Intake Rescue Shelter that since opening in 2004 has provided over 11,000 homeless, unwanted, abused, neglected and abandoned cats, kittens (and some dogs through foster care) with rescue, Veterinary and other care, rehab and a place to live until we can adopt them into safe and lasting homes. Many of them are injured, ill, disabled, and older and would be turned away or put down by other shelters. For these animals Angels with Paws is their last hope. This is amazing work considering we operate out of a converted Fast Food building, have very limited resources, few volunteers, no promotion, and no on-site Veterinarian. We educate the public on responsible pet ownership, and offer advice in caring for pets with the hope that they can be kept in their own homes instead of being relinquished to a shelter, the need to Spay/Neuter and the cruelty of declawing.
Angels with Paws does not receive any Government, Corporate or any regular funding. We do not have an on-site Veterinarian, and have to pay for our Veterinary Care and Supplies. Nearly all of our funding comes from private donations.
Our dream is to see the day when no adoptable animal will be euthanized.
Our shelter and adoption center at 2540 Youngfield St., Lakewood, CO 80215 is open to the public 7 days a week from 1 p.m. - 6 p.m. (except holidays). We partner with Petsmart in Wheat Ridge (Applewood on Youngfield), Chuck & Don's Pet Food Outlet in Lakewood (on Kipling) and Littleton (also on Kipling), as well as Hero's Pets in Littleton. We do many adoption events throughout these areas as well. Please contact shelter for details.
